Now that the results are clear, We can all breath out and hope for the better future. And I'm going back to the change I need, to less scrolling, less consuming and … Continue reading Do the work

Following my path

This morning I sat down at the table and I journaled like I promised myself I would. It was a check-in after a while of almost no journaling and it was good. Much needed and good. I looked at where I am and where I want to be, I checked what's important to me and … Continue reading Following my path

Routine change needed

Most of times when I think that I lost my ability to write a blog post, that all ideas are somewhere else, that I have nothing to say anymore, it means that I'm consuming too much and creating too little. It is also a sign that it's time to turn my routine around, that I … Continue reading Routine change needed

To buy or not to buy?

At the beginning of this year I promised myself not to buy any new books for the whole year. Just read from my shelves, from my e-book subscription and from the library. It went well, I only bought a couple of e-books I needed for some research, but I have a feeling that my to-read … Continue reading To buy or not to buy?

How I deal with no-days

Today I woke up late and from the start I felt like I lost a couple of hours of the day.

I felt lost for years. Feeling like I was in the wrong place. I was constantly searching, looking for this feeling of belonging, of knowing that I’m on the right path. And now, since I write every day, since I turned to the book world, to writing, O don’t feel lost anymore. I feel like … Continue reading I’m not lost anymore

100 days writing project – 50 days later

Today marks the 52nd day of my writing project. I filled one notebook with words and started another. I still don't know where it will take me, but I'm sure it will take me somewhere. I like my life this way. Spending my days in my room, writing, reading, working on everything that is important … Continue reading 100 days writing project – 50 days later

The question of planning

Sometimes I'd read an article on writing or talk to another writer about it and I would read or hear how important planning is. It very often sends me to a notebook to plan what I want to write, to get in all on paper. And nothing would happen. My mind would go blank and … Continue reading The question of planning

This is normal

If I hear/read one more time "I can't wait to get back to normal" I may scream. This is our normal, it's a new normal, but this is it. Accept it. Stop fighting it, learn to live with it and in the middle of it. This pandemic isn't going anywhere soon, and when it's gone, … Continue reading This is normal
